Could you please stop your FUD?
If you can't, please stay away!
I am willing to discuss things with any person who is interested in a real
discussion that is not mased in repeating FUD from uninformed people.
I did explain which SCSI commands are currently blocked by the Linux kernel
and will probably never be available again without root privs.
If other authors prefer to write hacky software instead of asking the drive
usig official MMC SCSI commands, I am willing to accept this but this is
not the way I write software.
If you like to know who "the wrong people" are, I may give you a list of
people who are known to write only FUD and uninformed nonsense during the
past 2 years:
- Eduard Bloch
- Matthias Andree
- Norbert Preining
